Overview

David Basner (Tom Hanks) is on a winning streak. He's a young, successful Chicago ad executive with two lovely women (Bess Armstrong and Sela Ward) vying for his attention. But things go awry for him when his parents (Jackie Gleason and Eva Marie Saint) decide to call it quits after 35 years of marriage. David then finds himself caught between his role of nursemaid to his father, and confidant to his mother. Long gone from the nest, David discovers that his parents are more complex than he had believed, and he gains a new appreciation of them in the process. This touching comedy/drama from director Garry Marshall (PRETTY WOMAN) contains Gleason's final film performance.
